## How do you write the formula for the conjugate acid?

In the Brxf8nstedLowry definition of acids and bases, a conjugate acidbase pair consists of two substances that differ only by the presence of a proton (Hu207a). A conjugate acid is formed when a proton is added to a base, and a conjugate base is formed when a proton is removed from an acid.

## What is the conjugate base of the following acids?

Hydrogen carbonate ion, HCO3, is derived from a diprotic acid and is amphiprotic. Its conjugate acid is H2CO3, and its conjugate base is CO32.

## How do you write the formula for the conjugate base?

Conjugate acids are a type of acid that is formed when a base accepts a proton in solution. Examples of conjugate acids include water (base) reacting with an acid to form the hydronium ion (conjugate acid), and ammonia (base) reacting with an acid to form the ammonium ion (conjugate acid).
